HOWARD COLLEGE 



For the session 1911-12 students will be allowed to 
enter Freshman Class conditioned on two units. 
These 2 units must be made up before entrance into 
the Junior Class. 

The Academy offers 12 units of high-school work. 
See under the heading 'The Academy." 

ADMISSION BY CERTIFICATE. 

Students coming from other colleges or instituitons 
doing standard college work will be admitted to ad- 
vanced standing upon presentation of certificates 
showing that they have completed the entrance 
requirements of this college and giving in detail the 
amount and character of the work done elsewhere. 

Students coming from unaccredited secondary 
schools and seeking entrance into the Freshman 
class are urged to bring with them a complete, certi- 
fied statement signed by their principal or other 
instructor showing actual preparatory work done. 

ENGLISH. 

ZYi units. 

1. Advanced Grammar 3^ unit. 

2. Composition and Rhetoric 1 unit. 

To meet this requirement the candidate should 

have completed grammar. He should therefore be 
able to spell, capitalize, and punctuate correctly and 
show a practical knowledge of inflection, syntax and 
sentence-structure. In addition to this, the candi- 
date must have devoted an academic year to the 
study of composition and rhetoric. Adequate com- 
position work presupposes an average of one theme 



hOWARD COLLEGE 13 

per week throughout the year. As the basis of such 
work the candidate must have used throughout the 
year some good high-school rhetoric. 

For 1910, 1911. 

3. Reading and Practice 1 unit. 

A certain number of books will be recommended 
for reading, ten of which, selected as described below, 
are to be offered for examination. The form of ex- 
amination will usually be the writing of a paragraph or 
two on each of several topics, to be chosen by the 
candidate from a considerable number — perhaps ten 
or fifteen — set before him in the examination paper. 
The treatment of these topics is designed to test the 
candidate's power for a clear and accurate expression, 
and will call for only a general knowledge of the sub- 
stance of the books. In every case knowledge of the 
book will be regarded as less important than the 
ability to write good English. In place of a part or 
the whole of this test, the candidate may present an 
exercise book, properly certified to by his instructor, 
containing compositions or other written work done 
in connection with the reading of the books. In 
preparation for this part of the requirement, it is 
important that the candidate shall have been in- 
structed in the fundamental principles of rhetoric.

SCHOOL OF ENGLISH. 

E. B. Fowi^ER, Professor. 

For requirements for admission to this school, 
see College Entrance Requirements. 

The aim of the school is to develop in the student 
the power of clear, correct and effective expression 
and to give him a thorough knowledge and apprecai- 
tion of the best in English and American literature. 
No applicant is admitted to any course who is deficient 
in spelling, punctuation, grammar, paragraph struc- 
ture and the use of capitals. 

1. (a) Composition and Rhetoric. 

An effort is made to eradicate the common errors 
which have crept into the speech and writing of the 
student. Emphasis is placed upon the practical side 
of composition. Frequent themes on subjects drawn 
from daily experience and observation are required, 
together with analyses of important selections from 
the accompanying course in literature and occasional 
written exercises based on such selections. 

(b) Literature. 

This part of the course embraces a careful his- 
torical survey of American Literature, including both 
the detailed study of selected masterpieces in class 
and the reading of others as parallel work. 

Five hours a week, first term. 

Required of all candidates for graduation.

LECTURES TO MINISTERIAL STUDENTS. 

During the current year several prominent clergy- 
men have delivered lectures before the ministerial 
students. In these lectures topics have been dis- 
cussed which have direct bearing not only upon stu- 
dent life, but also upon preaching and pastoral service. 

Special Lecture Course. 

During the Winter term 1911-12 the President 
of the College will deliver a course of lectures on sub- 
jects of interest to ministerial students. Some of these 
lectures will be open to the entire student body. 



HOWARD COLLEGE 55 

THE ACADEMY 



W. A. Berry, Principal. 

This department is designed to prepare young 
men for admission into the College classes. The stu- 
dents are under the same regulations and enjoy the 
same advantages as those in the College. The method 
of instruction and the course of study conform and 
lead directly to the College curriculum. Students 
completing any subject in this department are ad- 
mitted into the first College class in that subject with- 
out further examination. Students deficient in any 
schools of the College course are allowed to finish 
these subjects in the Academy, and at the same time, 
if desirable, to pursue other studies in the College. 

Each student is required to take four subjects, 
and to recite five times a week in each. Many of the 
subjects are continued through the two years, so that 
ample time may be had to give young men, who come 
to us poorly prepared, thorough preparation for their 
College course. Before entering any of the classes in 
this department, the student must stand a satis- 
factory examination, or furnish some other evidences 
of preparation satisfactory to the instructor. 

The courses of study offered in the Academy are 
as follows: 

ENGLISH. 

B. Grammar. In this course the student is 
thoroughly drilled in the parts of speech, parsing,

HOWARD COLLEGE 



GRADING AND EXAMINATIONS. 

In every class the student is questioned on the 
lesson of the day and graded according to his knowl- 
edge of the subject. A record of daily marks is kept 
by the professor. At the end of each six weeks an 
average of these marks is calculated and recorded. 
From this record the student's class standing is de- 
termined. 

To the parent or guardian is sent periodically a 
transcript of this record of class standing, together 
with such other information as may be deemed impor- 
tant. By the prompt and judicious attention of these 
to whom they are addressed, these reports may be 
made of great value in promoting improvement and 
in sustaining good discipline. 

EXAMINATIONS. 

In addition to the daily questioning, written ex- 
aminations, embracing the subjects treated in a given 
time, are held near the close of each term, and at such 
other times during the session as may be necessary. 
These examinations are given to test the student's 
knowledge of the subjects studied, and determine 
whether he is prepared to pass to a higher class or to 
graduate. In order to pass, students in all classes 
must make 70 per cent, on examination. In the final 
average the examination average counts two-fifths; 
the daily average three-fifths. 

Students must not absent themselves from their 
examinations. 



HOWARD COLLEGE 65

HOWARD COLLEGE 



BRYAN SCHOLARSHIP. 



By the kindness of Hon. William Jennings Bryan, 
of Nebraska, a sum of money was recently given the 
College for the purpose of aiding, each session, some 
worthy student. 

An examination will be held in April of each year 
to determine who shall hold this scholarship during 
the following session. 

The Bryan Scholarship is held this year by J. W. 
Vann, Jefferson County. 

It is suggested that thus friends of education may 
widen the field of opportunity for many worthy boys, 
and we urge men and women of means to emulate 
Mr. Bryan in his excellent course. 

U.D.C. SCHOLARSHIP. 

U. D. C. offers a scholarship covering tuition. 
This scholarship has been held during present ses- 
sion by Mr. Joe Embry. 

Seven scholarships are offered annually by 
Board of Trustees to worthy students. 

CECIL RHODES SCHOLARSHIP. 

Mr. Clayton E. Crossland, A.B., 1907, was, in 
January, 1910, chosen by the Alabama Committee for 
the Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford University, 
England. 

DEGREES. 

The degrees of Bachelor or Arts and Master of 
Arts are conferred upon students who complete the 
courses prescribed for these degrees. For specific 
requirements see "Courses of Study and Degrees." 



HOWARD COLLEGE 67

GENERAL INFORMATION. 



LOCATION. 



Ready transportation between the city and the 
College is afforded by an electric line, on which cars 
run each way at intervals of twelve minutes. The dis- 
tance is six miles and the fare five cents. Regular 
day students get a half rate. 

The authorities of the College are largely aided in 
the administration of moral discipline by the favorable 
surroundings of the institution. 

Religious worship is regularly held every Sabbath 
in the Baptist, Presbyterian and Methodist Churches, 
which are located within a few hundred yards of the 
College building. By special statute the sale of 
ardent spirits is prohibited within a radius of three 
miles. 

INCIDENTAL ADVANTAGES. 

By reason of the proximity of Howard College to 
a large city, it enjoys many advantages without ex- 
periencing the disadvantages of city life. 

The life and energy characteristic of this region 
are apt to awaken a corresponding spirit in the 
young men who attend this institution of learning. 
This, taken in connection with the public libraries of 
a large city, is not without vast benefit to the young 
men seeking development, while the firm but kind 
discipline serves to restrain students from any evil in- 



HOWARD COLLEGE 69 

fluences of the city. Birmingham citizens have re- 
marked upon the fact that no Howard student is 
ever seen in a barroom. 

PERSONAL ATTENTION OF THE 
PROFESSORS. 

The professors devote all their time to the stu 
dents, giving instruction in the class room during the 
day and visiting dormitories night and day. Parents 
committing their sons fully to the care of the College 
officers may be assured that physical comfort, moral 
influences and intellectual training will be provided. 

To avoid distracting influences, to command full 
attention, and to facilitate study, young men are re- 
quired to board and lodge at the College, unless their 
relatives live in town. 

RELIGIOUS CULTURE. 

Devotional exercises are held every morning in 
the Chapel, and the Faculty and students attend. 

Students are encouraged to attend the churches of 
their choice every Sunday morning; they are also 
encouraged to attend Sunday-school. 

SPECIAL CARE FOR YOUNG BOYS. 

Special attention will be given to boys under the 
ordinary age of college students. These will, as far 
as possible, be placed in the rooms of students of set- 
tled habits and good moral character. Ministerial stu- 
dents can often be induced to assume this responsible 
charge. 



70 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



SICKNESS. 



When ill, students have the personal attention of 
the Faculty and a committee. Parents and guardians 
are promptly notified of the sickness of students, and 
advised from time to time of their condition. 

BUILDINGS. 

The buildings are one main college building, a 
Library and Recitation building, and five dormitories. 

The main building is three stories high, and em- 
braces lecture rooms, offices, laboratories, society 
halls, and chapel. Renfroe Hall, the new dormitory, 
is a large and handsome building, which accommodates 
nearly one hundred students. 

Students should apply for rooms in advance. Ap- 
ply by number of rooms. Send for plan of buildings. 

THE LIBRARY. 

The ladies of the Howard College Library As- 
sociation have equipped and furnished a large and 
beautiful room in Montague Hall as a Library of the 
College, and are beginning the purchase of valuable 
books. The institution owes a debt of gratitude to 
these consecrated women, and the management com- 
mends their efforts to every friend of Christian edu- 
cation. During the past few years many valuable 
books have been added to the Library. These are a 
great help in furthering the work of the various de- 
partments. 

Those interested in the Library are requested to 
address the Secretary of the Association, Mrs. A. P. 
Montague, East Lake Station, Birmingham, Alabama. 

Friends of the College are earnestly requested to 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



71 



make donations of money, books or current magazines 
to the Library. Thus the opportunities for culture 
will be widened for the students and help will be 
given to those who desire to pursue advanced and 
general studies. 

The following periodicals have been at the service 
of the students during 1910-11: 

Atlantic Monthly. 

Cosmopolitan. 

The World's Work. 

The Outlook' Magazine (Monthly). 

The Outlook Magazine (Weekly). 

Everybody's^Magazine.

GOVERNMENT. 

The government is administered by the President 
and professors in accordance with the regulations 
adopted by the Board of Trustees. The rules incul- 
cate manly virtues, preserve order, require sobriety 
and morality, protect and encourage good students, 
and do not allow the persistently idle or immoral to 
remain where they can injure others. 

The personal influence of the President and Fac- 
ulty is exercised to encourage the young men in the 
discharge of their duties, and the co-operation of 
parents is solicited, as the success of the College gov- 
ernment depends greatly upon the support which is 
given from home to the administration of discipline. 

Daily reports of conduct and semi-monthly re- 
ports of studies are made to the President. From 
these six-weeks' report are made to parents and 
guardians. The reports to parents show the absolute 
and relative standing in each class, and other facts 
that may be thought of interest. 

CADET CORPS. 

For the purpose of physical education — erect, 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



73 



graceful and manly carriage of the body, a vigorous 
and healthy constitution, for cultivating politeness, 
moral courage, respect for self, deference to others, 
frankness, perseverance, industry, and self-reliance, 
and for giving the mind power of close and continued 
attention, all students over fifteen years of age are 
required to join the Cadet Corps, which is drilled no; 
more than one hour a day, and at such times as not 
to interfere with their studies. 

No student is excused from this duty, unless it be 
by the President and Commandant for special 
reasons. 

TO NEW STUDENTS. 

If new students will inform the President when 
they expect to arrive in Birmingham, they will be met 
at the depot by some student or member of the 
Faculty. 

A commiittee from the student-body meets all 
incoming trains bringing students. 

Baggage of students will be transferred from Bir- 
mingham to East Lake on the presentation of the 
check and transfer fee to the Quartermaster at the 
College. 

Rooms will be assigned before the opening of the 
session. Those intending to enter College are urged 
to m.ake application for rooms at least one month 
before the day of opening.

STUDENT ORGANIZATION. 



LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

There are in connection with the College and in 
successful operation, two literary societies: the Philo- 
mathic and the Franklin. They are provided with 
handsome halls, where they meet every Saturday even- 
ing for declam^ation, debate and other things pertain- 
ing to the interest of the societies. Besides these 
weekly meetings, each society holds during the season 
three public m.eetings: two for debate and one for 
declamation. The latter is arranged as a part of the 
Commencement exercises, and each society gives a 
medal for the best declam^ation. The medalists for 
1910-11 were as follows: 

Franklin. 
J. 0. WILLIAMS Clanton, Ala. 

Philomathic. 
R. K. HOOD Roanoke, Ala. 

The two societies unite in publishing a college 
annual, which is earnestly commended to the support 
of the alumni and other friends of the College. 

These literary societies are regarded as valuable 
aids to the student in forming a literary taste, in 
affording opportunities for practice in debate, and in 
obtaining a knowledge of parliamentary rules. All 
students in the College are required to join and attend 
one of the societies. The initiation fee, payable but 
once, in each society is one dollar, and the annual dues 
are the same. 



80 HOWARD COLLEGE 

THE MINISTERIAL CLASS. 

By the co-operation of the Executive Committee 
of the Birmingham Baptist Association, young min- 
isters are given work in the destitute places of the 
Association. Besides this, the care of churches in the 
suburbs of Birmingham and at adjacent points is 
offered. 

The ministerial students meet Tuesday evenings 
for the purpose of studying and analyzing Scripture 
texts, and for the discussion of matters of interest and 
profit to themselves. A series of lectures by leading 
ministers and Christian workers is given, and is of 
great benefit to the class. 

Y. M. C. A. 

For the development of spirituality among the 
students, a large and flourishing Y. M. C. A. is main- 
tained. The Bible Study and Mission Study Classes, 
conducted under the auspices of the Association, to 
the student seeking to develop a well-rounded charac- 
ter are of great assistance. This organization not only 
brings to the young men the vision of the worldwide 
missionary movement, but also furnishes a centre 
about which may crystallize the spiritual life of the 
entire student body. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES. 

All students are urged and encouraged in every 
way to attend the Sunday Schools of their respective 
denominations. 

Special arrangements are made from year to year 
to insure the attendance of all students, 



HOWARD COLLEGE 81 

ATHLETICS. 

The management of the College, desirous of en- 
couraging wholesome athletics and of giving to the 
student proper recreation, has had the ground south 
of the main college building graded and prepared for 
games of ball. 

Alumni and other friends who realize the value of 
physical exercise and the necessity of bright and 
happy surroundings are urged to make immediate 
gifts to the athletic fund of the College. It is our 
purpose to make the lives of our boys not only useful, 
but bright and cheerful. 

INTERCOLLEGIATE CONTEST. 

A contest is held annually, in which most of the 
colleges of Alabama take part, known as the Alabama 
Oratorical Contest. 

The winner of the inter-society College Contest 
for 1910-11 was Roy K. Hood, of Roanoke, who 
also represented the College in the State Intercollegiate 
Contest. 

In making preparation for this contest, the 
Faculty have decided: 

1. That the final hearing for choice of represen- 
tative in the Alabama Oratorical Contest shall be in 
the chapel annually, on the Friday before Thanks- 
giving. 

2. That into this competitive hearing shall enter 
at least three students from each of the two literary 
societies. 

3. That the societies choose their representatives 
three weeks before the date set for the hearing. 

4. That the College give $25 in gold to the win- 
ner in the contest held on the Friday before Thanks- 
giving,

INFORMATION CONCERNING ENTRANCE, 
TUITION, BOARD, ETC. 



THE SCHOLASTIC YEAR. 

The next session begins on Tuesday, the 12th of 
September, and continues nine scholastic months, 
the annual Commencement occurring on Wed- 
nesday, May 22nd. The session is divided into two 
terms, the second term beginning January 29, 1912. 
The exercises are suspended for about ten days at 
Christm.as. 

Students are urged to be present at the opening 
of the session and to return promptly after the holi- 
days. The delay or loss of even a few days is often a 
great hindrance to the future progress of the student. 
Paircns are particularly requested to co-operate with 
the Faculty to the end that all students shall remain 
in College before the Christmas recess and the close 
of the session until all exercises have been concluded. 

MATRICULATION. 

Every applicant for admission arriving in the city 
is required to report promptly at the College for 
registration. To be admitted he must be of good 
moral character; if he has been a student of another 
institution, he must present satisfactory evidence of 
good moral conduct while there; and he must undergo 
such examination as will satisfy the Faculty that his 
character and attainments will justify his admission. 



Howard college ^3 

Then, after arranging with the Treasurer for his ex- 
penses for the term, he is required to matriculate at 
once. 

CLASSIFICATION. 

The student is examined and classified according 
to his advancement in each of the several subjects he 
may wish to study. Great care is exercised that 
no one may enter higher than his previous training 
and present attainments will justify. All new stu- 
dents must appear before the Committee on Classi- 
fication of New Students before entering any classes. 

SELECTION OF STUDIES. 

A student is allowed to select the courses of study 
that will best qualify him for his life's vocation. The 
Faculty, believing in the necessity and utility of a 
broad and liberal education, will always encourage a 
complete course. To this end, the right is reserved 
to prescribe the studies of students in any case where, 
in the wisdom of the Faculty, it seems necessary. 
The student is expected to adhere throughout the 
session to the course selected. 

Every one is required to have at least fourteen 
recitations a week. Eighteen recitations a week 
are regarded, in the experience of the Faculty, as suf- 
ficient for the average student, and even for the stu- 
dent of greatest capacity. To undertake more than 
these means a class of work unsatisfactory to the pro- 
fessor and the student, and the result may be failure. 
Hence, no student is allowed to carry more than 
eighteen recitations a week.

HOWARD COLLEGE 



EXPENSES. 



All expenses are payable strictly in advance at the 
beginning of each term, and must be settled for within 
ten days after opening of each term. 

When a student leaves College before the close of 
the term, board may be refunded, but no fees; and 
tuition will be refunded only when resignation from 
College is caused by ill health, certificate of which 
must be presented from a physician. 

No reduction in board or tuition is allowed for 
absence of less than four weeks. 

Remittances should be made to the Treasurer by 
registered letter, money order, or New York exchange. 

The expenses in detail are as follows: 

Tuition. — Tuition in all departments is J?30.00 a 
term. 

Board. — Board is ^60.00 per term for all students. 
Students lodge in the dormitory and take their meals 
in the College dining hall. Great care is exercised in 
the selection and preparation of the food. The dining 
hall is in charge of a competent and worthy matron. 
The dining hall closes December 21st and opens 
January 1st for students returning for the new year. 

Room, fuel and lights, ^10.00 a term. The rooms 
of students are furnished with the most approved 
styles of iron bedsteads, provided with wire-woven 
springs. Tables, chairs, mattresses and other articles 
of necessity are provided by the College. Every stu- 
dent, however, is required to bring a pair of blankets 
or comforts, sheets and pillow cases. When he re- 
tires from the College, he may remove them as a 
portion of his baggage. 

Incidental Fee. — An incidental fee of J55.00 per 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



85 



term is charged every student. No exceptions are 
made. This fee is required for fuel, repairs, and the 
incidental expenses of the College. 

Physical Culture Fee. — Each student pays ^2.50 
a term as a Physical Culture fee. This fee is charged 
to promiote the practice of wholesome exercise and 
proper athletics. 

Library Fee. — Each student pays ^1.25 a term to- 
ward the maintenance and development of the Library. 

Laboratory Fees. — Students in the Chemistry 
classes are required to pay a fee of $5.00 for chemicals 
used in the laboratory. Students in Physics pay $2.50 
per year for the use of apparatus. 

Cost of Uniforms. — Arrangements have been 
made by the Faculty with a responsible firm, whereby 
cadets can secure uniforms, made of the best material, 
West Point regulation style, at a cost of not exceeding 
$16.00 per suit. While all students in the Cadet 
Corps are required to purchase uniforms, yet they 
cost less than citizens' suits of the same quality, and 
are most durable. Therefore they diminish rather 
than increase the student's expenses at college. 

Incidental Expenses of the Student. — In addi- 
tion to the above named expenses, the student will 
need a small amount of money for stationery, books, 
laundry, etc. But the Faculty would impress 
upon parents and guardians that students need little 
money beyond what is advertised in the College 
catalogue; and parents are advised to limit the 
amount of pocket change allowed their sons. 

When requested to do so, the Treasurer will act 
3S fiscal guardian of students, granting only such sums 
to them as may be needed. Nothing contributes more 



86 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



to the demoralization of the young man at college 
than a well-filled purse for private use. 

Not infrequently complaint is made because of 
the extravagance of a student at college, as if the in- 
stitution were responsible for the amounts sent from 
time to timie by parents or guardians. The actual 
college expenses are stated in the catalogue; and if 
parents or guardians are lavish in their gifts of money 
to their sons or wards, they should not hold the 
college responsible. 

SUMMARY OF EXPENSES. 

It will be seen from the above specifications that 
board, tuition, and required fees cost the student in 
the boarding department: 

Per term ^108.75 

Per session 217.50 

Students not boarding in the College: 

Per term.._._ ^ 38.75 

Per session 77.50 

A discount of 10 per cent, is given on all fees, 
board excepted, where two or more students come 
from the same family. This discount is allowed only 
on condition that all bills are paid in advance. 

The foregoing expenses are as low as it is possible 
to make them and yet insure efficient work and first- 
class accommodations. To lower the expenses further 
would mean to lower the standard of work and the 
character of accommodations. It is purposed, on the 
contrary, to raise these without increase of expense to 
the students. No one who understands the impor- 
tance of the right kind of education would prefer 
cheapness to thoroughness. It is the purpose of the 



HOWARD COLLEGE 87 

management to give full "value received" for every 
cent charged. Howard's mission is to make men, not 
money — to protect its students from the ruinous 
habits of vice and dissipation, and to develop their 
mental, moral, and physical possibilities into strong 
harmonious characters. 

MISSION ROOM. 

Through the generous kindness of Rev. Allen 
Smith, Mr. and Mrs. D. H. Marbury, and other 
friends of Marbury, Alabama, a room in Montague 
Hall has been well and comfortably furnished as the 
headquarters of Missions in Howard College. There 
young men who will become missionaries meet, study, 
and plan for the great work of their lives. 

SONS OF MINISTERS. 

The sons of active ministers are given one-half 
their tuition free. 

STUDENTS FOR THE MINISTRY. 

Young men studying for the Gospel Ministry, 
who come duly approved by their churches and in- 
dorsed by the Board of Ministerial Education, are 
admitted free of charge for tuition. They are charged 
for board and fees the same as other students. 

Ministerial students must, at matriculation, pay 
the dues required at entrance, or make satisfactory 
arrangements for the same with the Board of Min- 
isterial Education. The Faculty will assum.e no 
risks on deferred payments. 

The Board of Ministerial Education will assist 



88 HOWARD COLLEGE 

worthy young men from Baptist churches in Alabama 
in paying their expenses at College. 

They must conform to the following regulations; 

1. Moral. — In addition to being a member in 
good standing of a Missionary Baptist Church, the 
beneficiary must bring the indorsement of his church, 
expressing their belief that he is called of God to 
preach the Gospel. 

2. Financial — The object of the Board is to help 
only those who need help; therefore, it refuses to con- 
tribute anything to a student who has resources of his 
own. The Board very earnestly asks that the 
church and association giving indorsement of a brother 
signify at the same time their purpose to render him 
financial aid to the extent of his necessities or their 
ability. 

3. Education. — The Board requests all benefi- 
ciaries hereafter to be prepared for the Freshman 
Class in at least two subjects before entering Howard 
College. 

Young men needing aid should write to one of the 
Officers of the Board of Ministerial Education. 

W. M. Blackwelder Birmingham, Ala. 

President. 

J. A. Hendricks Birmingham, Ala. 

Secretary and Treasurer. 

Friends of the College will confer upon the insti- 
tution a great favor, and will aid the cause of Chris- 
tian education, if they will send the President or the 
Secretary the names and addresses of young men who 
may be led to enter Howard College. 

The constant co-operation and sympathy of all 
interested in higher education are earne3tly invokedt

A BRIEF HISTORY OF HOWARD COLLEGE. 

By Rev. JOHN R. SAMPEY, D.D., LL.D., 

(Howard, 1882) 

Professor in the Southern Baptist Theological 
Seminary. 



FOUNDING OF THE COLLEGE 

In August, 1833, the Alabama Baptist State Con- 
vention, at a thinly-attended meeting, resolved to 
found a school for the education of young ministers. 
It was deemed best to combine manual labor with 
mental cultivation. In 1834 a farm of three hundred 
and fifty-five acres, within a mile of Greensboro, was 
purchased for ^6,390, payment to be made in three 
annual installments. At a meeting of the State Con- 
vention in 1835 the agents reported that $12,000 had 
been subscribed for the Manual Labor School. The 
Trustees of the institution announced to the Con- 
vention of 1836 the attendance of fifty students. 
By formal resolution the Convention declared that 
the chief aim in founding the school was ''the im- 
provement of the ministry of our denomination." 
The financial panic of 1837, together with internal 
disorder and dissensions in the Manual Labor School, 
so discouraged the State Convention that at an ad- 
journed session in December, 1837, it ordered the 
sale of the property to meet an indebtedness of 
$7,000. The balance of $2,000 was appropriated to 
ministerial education. 

In Rev. Thomas Chilton's admirable Report on 
Education, presented to the Alabama Baptist State 



128 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



Convention in 1849, may be found a brief history of 
the founding and early life of Howard. We quote the 
first two paragraphs: 'The incipient steps toward es- 
tablishing Howard College were taken by the Alabama 
Baptist State Convention, at its regular annual 
meeting in Talladega, in November, 1841. At that 
time it was resolved to establish a college of a high 
character; a plan for its endowment was proposed; 
an agent was appointed; Mlarion, Perry County, was 
selected as its location; a Board of thirteen Trustees 
was appointed to control said institution, to whom 
all subscriptions were to be made payable, and by 
whom, when they should become a corporate body, 
all property of the institution should be held." 

In January, 1842, the school was opened, with 
Prof. S. S. Sherman, a graduate of Bowdoin College, 
and more recently a tutor at Tuskaloosa, as Presi- J 
dent and sole teacher. Nine small boys, meeting in 
a modest wooden building, formed the original 
student-body over which the accomplished and wise 
young master presided. The number of students rose 
to thirty-one before June, 1842. 

THE CHARTER. 

The Board of Trustees announced to the State 
Convention in 1842 that a charter for Howard Col- 
lege had been obtained, and proposed a plan for en- 
dowing a Professorship of Theology with $20,000. 
The convention approved the plan, and two years 
later the entire amount had been subscribed. During 
the session of 1842-3 Mr. Sherman was reinforced by 
Prof. S. Lindsey and an assistant. Prof. A. A. Con- 
nella and Jesse Hartwell were added to the Faculty 
during the session of 1843-4. 

In 1844, just as Rev. J. H. DeVoite was com- \ 



HOWARD COLLEGE 129 

mencing a campaign for the further endo\VTnent of 
the Howard, the college building was destroyed by 
fire. Through the earnest efforts of the students, aided 
by the citizens, the library and the physical and astro- 
nomical apparatus were saved. New grounds were 
purchased for j551,500 and a better building, erected 
at a cost of $11,500, was ready for occupancy in 1846. 

During the earlier years of its history Howard was 
not strictly a college, but only a preparatory school, 
advancing students through the Sophomore year. 
During the session of 1846-7 a Junior class was 
formed, and on the 27th of July, 1848, four young 
men were graduated with the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts, and three with that of Bachelor of Science. 

During the session of 1847-8 there were only two 
theological students in Howard. At the close of the 
session Dr. Jesse Hartwell resigned as Professor of 
Theology, and Rev. T. F. Curtis, of Tuskaloosa, was 
elected to the chair. During the session oi 1848-9 
there were six ministerial students in the College, an 
increase which the Board noted with much satisfac- 
tion, and the total enrollment rose to one hundred and 
forty-five. There were now six regular instructors, 
besides a pupil who assisted in the teaching. Presi- 
dent Sherman was building wisely, and the Baptist 
people were justly proud of their twin schools at 
Marion. 

CHANGE OF PRESIDENT. 

On the first of January, 1852, Professor Curtis, 
who had previously notified the Board of his purpose 
to resign, was succeeded by Rev. Henry Talbird, of 
Montgomery. Before the close of the session of 
1851-2, Professor Sherman, who had presided over the 



130 HOWARD COLLEGE 

fortunes of the College from its foundation, informed 
the Trustees of his intention to sever his connection 
with the school at the end of the session. Noah K.- 
Davis, a gifted scholar and teacher, took Professor 
Sherman's chair of Natural Sciences, and Dr. Talbird 
was chosen as President, a position which he filled with 
great acceptance until the war interrupted the work 
of the College. Dr. Talbird then donned the uniform 
of a Confederate soldier and went to the front. 

During the session of 1852-3 the total enrollment 
of the students was one hundred and forty-eight, of 
whom fourteen were in the Theological Department. 

THE FIRE. 

On the night of October 15th, 1854, the College 
building was burned to the ground. President Talbird 
had inspected the building, and all the students had 
retired for the night. About midnight the cry of 
"Fire!" was heard. Already the flames, which seem to 
have originated on the basement floor, were sweeping 
up the wooden stairway, cutting off all escape to the 
students on the upper floors. 'The faithful janitor, 
Harry, a slave belonging to President Talbird, was the 
first to be aroused by the fire. He flew up the stairs 
with lightning speed, through flame and smoke, and 
showed his devotion to the students by rushing to 
each door of the rooms occupied by the sleeping in- 
mates, and apprising them of their peril. Coming 
frequently into contact with the flames, the heroic 
negro abated not his haste or determination to arouse 
the inmates of each room. When the circuit had 
been made, poor Harry sprang for his life from a high 
window and fell to the earth in an unconscious con- 
dition, his cllothes almost consumed by the fire, and 



HOWARD CXJLLEGE 131 

his hair and eyebrows burnt away. The faithful slave 
was soon a corpse — he had given his life for others." — 
(Riley's History of ike Baptists in Alabama.) The 
students of Howard and nnennbers of the Alabama 
Baptist Convention united in erecting a monument 
in the cemetery at Marion to the heroic janitor. 
Only one student lost his life through the fire, but 
two professors and about ten students were more or 
less seriously injured, most of them from having to 
jump to the ground from the upper floors. The ap- 
paratus, cabinets and libraries in the building were a 
total loss. Howard College was left with a building 
lot, old notes on endowment estimated at 5^40,000, 
and new subscriptions, obtained in the summer of 
1854 by Rev. Z. G. Henderson, amounting to some- 
thing over ^10,000. 

THE REBUILDING OF THE COLLEGE. 

In this season of calamity the friends of the 
Howard rallied to its support. Marion led in the 
good work. Dr. J. T. Barron, a member of the first 
graduating class of the College, gave a better lot for 
the new building, and the citizens of Marion sub- 
scribed liberally for the erection of these buildings. 
Rev. J. H. DeVotie accepted the positiohn of financial 
agent for the College, and within a year raised ^40,000 
for new buildings and additional endowment. Prof. 
Noah K. Davis drew the plans for the three new 
buildings, which, when completed, became the home 
of Howard College until its removal to East Lake 
in 1887. 

In 1856 Rev. Washington Wilkes, one of the first 
graduates of the College, succeeded Rev. J. H. De- 
Votie as financial agent. Early in 1857 the Board of 



132 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



Trustees reported that the total endowment fund of 
Howard was $95,528.21. The chapel and one of the 
dormitory buildings was then ready for occupancy. 
During 1857 Rev. Z. G. Henderson added to the per- 
manent fund of the College J^8,000. In the report 
for 1857, the Board for the first time mentioned the 
name of Mr. Jere H. Brown, of Sumter County, who 
did so much for the Howard within the next three 
years. They tell us that Mr. Brown had promised to 
support six theological students. Within two years 
the number of ministerial students rose from seven 
to twenty-one, of whom Mr. Brown was supporting 
twelve. Rev. W. S. Barton, the financial secretary 
for 1858, reported to the Board 5^47,000 in conditional 
subscriptions. It was agreed that none of these 
subscriptions would be binding unless 5^100,000 should 
be raised. During the session of 1858-9 there were 
twenty-four students for the ministry in Howard. 
Howard College has had only one Jere H. Brown. 
Blessings on his memory! 

THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES. 

Early in the Civil War President Talbird became 
Colonel of the Forty-first Alabama Regiment. The 
attendance of students fell off until only two pro- 
fessors were retained in the College — A. B. Good- 
hue and D. B. Sherman. In 1862 General E. D. 
King, of Marion, died. Dr. B. F. Riley does not over- 
state the value of his services when he says: "It is 
not too much to say that the denomination of the 
State is more indebted to General E. D. King for the 
successful establishment and maintenance of its two 
shcools than to any other." 

In May, 1863, the Confederate authorities made 



HOWARD COLLEGE 133 

application for the use of the Howard buildings for 
hospital purposes. The request was granted, and 
the exercises of the College were suspended until 
after the war. In 1865 the Federal soldiers occupied 
the building as a hospital. Against the earnest and 
repeated protest of the Trustees, one of the dormi- 
tories was appropriated to the use of the freed negroes. 
As was foreseen, this resulted in serious damage to 
the building. The property of the College was held 
under libel for confiscation by the United States 
Marshal, but was subsequently released. 

THE COLLEGE REOPENED. 

In the fall of 1865, the College was opened for 
students, with a Faculty consisting of Professors A. B. 
Goodhue, E. Q. Thornton, and Tutor D. P. Good- 
hue. Dr. Talbird declined to accept the office of 
President. Shortly after the meeting of the State 
Convention in November, 1865, Dr. J. L. M. Curry 
yielded to the entreaty of the Board, and became 
President of the Howard until the close of the session 
of 1867-8. He labored against untold difficulties 
arising from the impoverished condition of the peo- 
ple of Alabama. The crops in 1866 were almost a 
failure, so that he could do little to provide funds 
for the institution. In the face of the financial de- 
pression, the ladies of Marion spent nearly J55600 for 
repairs and improvements upon the buildings and 
grounds. 

During the first three sessions after the war the 
attendance of students in the Howard was small. In 
1867-8 there were only fifty names on the roll. 

After Dr. Curry's resignation. Professor Thornton 
was made the administrative head of the school. His 



134 HOWARD COLLEGE 

brief administration of one year was eminently suc- 
cessful in increasing the attendance, one hundred and 
fifteen names appearing on the roll. At the close of 
the session he gave up the presidency, retaining, how- 
ever, his chair in the College. Rev. Samuel R. Free- 
man, who was graduated from the Howard in 1855, 
was elected President of the College in 1869. He 
met the highest expectation of. his friends during the 
two years he held the place. The attendance rose in 
1869-70 to one hundred and eighty-four. There was a 
considerable falling off the following year. . . 

DR. DILL. 

In the catalogue for 1869-70 appeared for the first 
time the name of Thomas J. Dill as Professor of 
Greek and Latin Literature. For more than a 
quarter of a century this great teacher gave to Howard 
College service of the first order. Hundreds of young 
men in a score of States revere his memory. 

When Dr. Freeman gave up the presidency in 1871, 
retaining for a short time the position of Professor of 
Theology, the Trustees called Colonel J. T. Murfree, 
who was already known to the people of Alabama as 
an excellent organizer, disciplinarian, and instructor, 
to become President of Howard College. For sixteen 
years he filled the office with great ability, and it was 
the wish of the alumni and other friends of the Col- 
lege that he should preside over its fortunes as long 
as his strength would allow. He resigned in 1887, 
when the Convention decided to remove the Howard 
from Marion to East Lake, 

The first sepious effort to endow Howard College 
after the war had its origin in connection with the 
Centennial of American Independence. The subject 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



135 



of endowment came before the Alabama Baptist State 
Convention in 1875, and it was agreed that the Cen- 
tennial among Alabama Baptists should be celebrated 
by. raising an endowment for -Howard College. It 
was suggested that it was practical to secure as much 
as one dollar from every Baptist in the State. A 
•Central Centennial Committee, consisting of one 
member from each district association in the State, 
was appointed, and Rev. J. J. D. Renfroe, D.D., was 
chosen as general agent to superintend the movement. 
He went over the State making speeches in the in- 
terest of the College, and did -much to advertise the 
school among the Baptists everywhere, but the plan 
was foredoomed to failure, as far as fmanciai results 
were concerned. Wealthy Baptists were prompt to 
comiC forward with one dollar each, when they ought 
to have put hundreds and thousands into the en- 
dowment. The agent gave a year of self-sacrificing 
toil to. the cause of education, and those who are 
familiar with the situation before and after 1876 
think the year bore good fruit in many directions. 
But Howard had no endowment at the close of the 
Centennial campaign. 

From 1876 to 1878 W. D. Fonville was Professor 
of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy. During the 
sessions of 1877-9 J. M. Dill taught Chemistry and 
Natural History. In the fall of 1876 Lewis T. 
Gwathmey came to teach Mathematics and Modern 
Languages. He was a teacher of the first rank and a 
Christian gentleman of exalted ideas. He was stricken 
with a fatal attack of fever in the summer of 1881. 
Colonel W. R. Boggs served as Professor of Chem- 
istry, etc,, from 1879 to 1881. Colonel A. F. Redd 
succeeded Professor Boggs in 1881, and Professor 



136 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



A. D. Smith took the place of the lamented Gwathmey. 
The Faculty for the last six years at Marion consisted 
of J. T. Murfree, Thomas J. Dill, A. F. Reid, and 
A. D. Smith, together with a teacher of the Prepara- 
tory Department. 

The attendance of students in 1871-2 was one hun- 
dred and thirty-five. It fell to eighty-eight in 1879- 
80. The average attendance for the last sixteen years 
at Marion was one hundred and twelve. 

In 1884 Howard College was sold, the property 
being bought in by certain friends of the school. This 
step was taken in order to settle forever the question 
of free tuition for persons holding ante-bellum cer- 
tificates of scholarship. 

REMOVAL OF COLLEGE. 

The State Convention in Birmingham In 1886 
tendered its thanks to Colonel J. B. Lovelace and Dr. 
W. W. Wilkerson for their wisdom and generosity in 
securing the title to the College property and dedi- 
cating it to the Convention. Now that the Conven- 
tion had a title to Howard College, unincumbered, it 
was deemed wise to proceed at once to raise an ade- 
quate endowment. Pledges amounting to 556,600 
were made by the mem^bers of the Convention in a few 
minutes, and the enthusiasm ran high. This was on 
Saturday afternoon, July 17, 1886. On the following 
Monday night Dr. E. B. Teague introduced a resolu- 
tion looking to the removal of Howard College to the 
neighborhood of Birmingham. After much earnest 
discussion, on Tuesday morning the resolution inviting 
bids from land companies for the removal of the Col- 
lege was adopted. A committee of five was appointed 
to receive bids and report back to the next meeting 



HOWARD COLLEGE 



137 



of the Convention. Dr. G. A. Nunnally, appointed 
fiscal agent, raised in cash $2,172.97 and in subscrip- 
tions for permanent endowment about $14,000. 
Partly owing to the discussion of removal, the attend- 
ance at Howard fell off a little during the session of 
1886-7, and there was a deficit of $1,632.29 for the 
year. 

At the State Convention in Union Springs in July, 
1887. there was a spirited debate over the question of 
removing the Howard from Marion. Several bids 
were reported from land companies. It was finally 
decided that the College should be removed, and a 
prudential committee of thirteen was appointed to ex- 
amine the various bids, with power to accept the bid 
which promised most for the future of the College. 
The subscription of the East Lake Company and 
others co-operating with them amounted to an esti- 
mated total of $170,075, most of which consisted of 
donations of land at the inflated prices then prevailing 
in and around Birmingham. This bid was ultimately 
accepted by the prudential committee, and the Col- 
lege opened at East Lake in October, 1887. 

Meantime the boom at Birmingham had collapsed, 
and men found if difficult to redeem their pledges in 
money. Moreover, but little had actually been sub- 
scribed apart from the donations of land. It was with 
great difficulty that $8,000 could be got together to 
erect two temporary wooden buildings for the school 
by October 1st. 

THE COLLEGE AT EAST LAKE. 

Professors Dill, Smith, and Giles came with the 
books and fixtures to East Lake, and Professors 



138 HOWARD COLLEGE 

Macon and Waldrop were added to the. Faculty. 
Prof. Robert Frazer, LL.D., having declined its presi- 
dency, Dr. J. T. Dill was elected Chairman of the 
Faculty for the session of 1887-8. He discharged the 
duties of the office in a most creditable manner. 

In 1888 one of the noblest sacrifices ever made for 
* Howard College was the act of Mr. and Mrs. iFelix 
Wood, of Woodlawn, Ala., who, to save the institu- 
tion, mortgaged their home for ^2,050. Such acts as 
this are the causes of life and prosperity for the insti- 
tutions of Christianity. 

Prof. J. L. Johnson, LL.D., of the University of 
Mississippi, was elected by the Board in 1888 as Presi- 
dent of the Howard, but he declined the call. Late 
in the Summer of 1888 the position was tendered to 
Rev. B. F. Riley, who accepted, and at once went to 
work to -secure students for the approaching session. 
The presence of yellow fever in the State greatly hin- 
dered the new President, so that the enrollment for 
the year was only one hundred and forty-three. Dr. 
Riley maintained a close supervision over the student- 
body. He soon became known as a rigid disciplinarian 
and diligent canvassing agent. Early in 1889 Rev. 
D. L Purser succeeded Dr. Shaffer as financial agent, 
and secured about ^32,000 in notes for the erection of 
a perm.anent building. During the summer of 1889 
Mrs. Tart, of Livingston, Mrs. Etheridge of Avon- 
dale, and other ladies, furnished new beds and bedding 
for the Howard Dormitory. Dr. Riley and two of his 
colleagues went all over Alabama during the vacation, 
canvassing for students, and they had their reward in 
the increased attendance. 

At Selma, in November, 1889, the Baptists of tlie 
entire State rallied nobly to the support of their Col- 



HOWARD COLLEGE 139 

lege, pledging $14,415.51 for the new buildings. The 
Convention of 1889 was remarkable for the restoration 
of harmony in the ranks of the denomination. The 
number of students during the session of 1889-90 was 
one hundred and seventy, and during the following 
session it rose to two hundred and six, a larger number 
than h^d ever. before been matriculated at the Howard. 
The main, building was completed in the spring of 
1891. . ' 

THE SEMI-CENTENNIAL. 

. ., In JunQ, 1892, Howard College celebrated its semi- 
centennial, when addresses were delivered by Rev. 
J. B. Hawthorne, D.D., General George D. Johnston, 
Prof. D. G. Lyon, and others. In the summer of 1893 
Dr. Riley accepted a professorship in the University 
of Georgia. Rev. A. W. McGaha, an alumnus of the 
Howard, was cliosen as President of the College. Dr. 
! McGaha found the College deeply in debt, owing to 
I the failure of many subscribers to meet their notes to 
the building fund. 

^ IDuring the session of 1893-4 one hundred and 
i fifty-two students were enrolled, nineteen of whom 
were graduated in June, 1894. The College grounds 
were improved in appearance by the voluntary work 
of the students, who dug up trees and stumps, and 
made the graded walks through the campus. A gra- 
cious revival of religion swept through the College, 
under the preaching of Rev. L. O. Dawson and Rev. 
J, H.. Foster, all the students in the barracks e.xcept 
one. being converted. 

In the summer of 1895 Prof . G. W. Macon ac- 
cepted a call to Mercer University. Mr. S. J. Ansley 
was selected to assist Professor Dill in Latin and 



140 HOWARD COLLEGE 

Greek, and in 1900 he was chosen Professor of Greek/ 
Upon Dr. Dill's retirement in 1901, Professor Anstey 
was elected to the chair. of Latin, while holding the 
professorship of Greek. After several years of faith- 
ful and successful service for the College, Professor 
Ansley retired by reason of ill health. 

In June, 1896, Dr. McGaha declined reelection as 
President, and Prof. A. D. Smith was made Chairman 
of the Faculty for the year 1896-7. Drs. B. D. Gray 
and P. T. Hale and Rev. W. A. Hobson took the 
field in the interest of the Howard, and soon rasied 
in cash j^8,000. But the debt of the College, allowing 
liberally for assets, was ^26,000. 

CHANGE OF ADMINISTRATION. 

Prof. A. D. Smith resigned his chair in Howard at 
the close of the session of 1896-7. Prof. F. M. Roof 
was made Chairman of the Faculty, and Edwin H. 
Foster was elected Professor of English. Edgar P. 
Hogan, a recent alumnus of the Howard, was chosen 
Professor of Natural Sciences, and he was, until 
June, 1906, Chairman of the Faculty and Command- 
ant. In 1898 Professor Edward Brand, a graduate of 
the State College of Kentucky, was added to the 
Faculty; and in August, 1906, he was elected Chairman 
of the Faculty. 

A committee, appointed by the State Convention 
in December, 1897, to ascertain the value of the land 
and buildings, reported that the buildings and fixtures 
were worth about ^30,000, and all the lands, originally 
put at over $100,000, were now worth about $8,105.20. 
If a purchaser could have been found for the College 
property in 1897, the institution would not have 



HOWARD COLLEGE 141 

been able to meet its indebtedness with the proceeds 
of the sale. 

The Faculty of Howard College now came to the 
rescue and were successful in their management of 
affairs. The State Convention at Opelika in 1898 
decided to come to the relief of the brave Faculty. 
Through the labors of a committee, consisting of B. D. 
Gray, A. C. Davidson, F. M. Roof, and D. L. Lewis, 
the entire debt of Howard College was paid in full on 
the 14th day of July, 1899. D. L. Lewis, of Syca- 
more, Alabama, led the givers, though others gave 
liberally. He also aided his colleagues of the com- 
mittee in securing large contributions from men of 
means. It began to look as if the spirit of Jere H. 
Brown had come back to earth again. 

Meantime President Roof and the Faculty con- 
ducted the discipline and instruction with great 
faithfulness and good success. In June, 1902, Presi- 
dent Roof voluntarily retired from the presidency, 
after five years of excellent work. Rev. L. O. Dawson 
was elected President later on in the same month, but 
declined the office. At the State Convention in New 
Decatur, June, 1902, steps were taken to improve the 
charter of the College, and nearly $2,000 was sub- 
scribed toward paying the salary of the incoming 
President. 

In 1901 Allen J. Moon, a graduate of Howard 
College and some time student in the University of 
Virginia, was chosen Professor of Greek and Latin, 
In 1902 G. W. Cunningham, an alumnus of Furman 
University, was put in charge of English and Philos- 
ophy, and the next year John C. Dawson, who grad- 
uated from Georgetown College, was elected to the 
chair of Modem Languages. The year before M. B. 



142 HOWARD COLLEGE 

Garrett, an A. M; of Howard College, was added to 
the teaching corps. Mr. Garrett, having resigned in 
1905, Mr. J. W. Vardaman, a graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Alabama, was chosen principal of the Acad- 
emy, and Mr. D. F. Stakely, an alumnus of Mercer 
University, and Mr. Albert Lee Smith, Howard, '05, 
were added to the Academy teaching force. In -May, 
1905, Prof. G. W. Cunningham, having been offered 
a scholarship in Cornell University, was granted ;leave 
of absence, and J. A. Hendricks, A.B., Howard Col- 
lege, and some time special student in Columbia Uni- 
versity, New York, was appointed Acting Professor 
of English and Philosophy. 

DR. MONTAGUE. 

Since the fall of 1902 A. P. Montague, LL.D., has 
presided over the fortunes of Howard. The Trustees 
counted themselves happy to be able to secure the 
services of a trained and experienced educator, who 
had demonstrated in other States his ability to cope 
with difficult situations. Since Dr. Montague's con- 
nection with the Howard the grounds have been much 
improved in appearance, a substantial stone wall has 
been placed in front of the campus, additions have 
been made to the Faculty, the roll of students has been 
increased from one hundred and twenty to two hun- 
dred and seven. Renfroe Hall, a commodious brick 
dormitory, has been erected and furnished at a cost 
of ^18,000, and the Baptists of the State have con- 
tributed nearly ^5,000 a year to current expenses. 
President Montague threw himself into the work of 
canvassing for students and raising money with such 
unremitting zeal that he seemed at one time about to 
break down his health. The friends of the College 



HOWARD CX>LLEGE 143 

rejoice in his recovery, and stand ready to follow his 
leadership in promoting the interests of the Howard. 

A substantial, tasteful, and convenient brick build- 
ing was erected in 1905, at a cost of $10,000, with 
special reference to the immediate needs of the Li- 
brary and for the accommodation of classes. 

By action of the Trustees, this building bears the 
name of Montague Hall, in memory of Mrs. May 
Christian Montague. 

At a meeting of the Alabama Baptist State Con- 
vention, held at Sheffield in July, 1905, it was resolved 
that an effort be made to raise an endowment, the 
General Education Board of New York having agreed 
to give $25,000, if the Baptists and others of Alabama 
would raise $75,000. The work began soon after the 
adjournment of the Convention, and by the middle of 
April, 1906, the sum of $75,000 had been promised;and 
bonds given by subscribers. The tim.e for payment 
runs through a period of five years. 

It is of extreme importance that this endowment 
be paid and that a much larger sum be raised. To ac- 
complish the work of a modern, progressive college, 
Howard m.ust have a great endowment, and that right 
early. 

In May, 1906, Prof. E. P. Hogan, who had for 
years faithfully served the College as Professor and 
Chairman of the Faculty, resigned to practice medi- 
cine, and Prof. Edward Brand was chosen Chairman 
of the Faculty. In May, 1907, Dr. Brand was elected 
Dean of the Faculty and Prof. J. A. Hendricks^v^as 
elected to a full professorship. At the same time 
A. H. Olive, a graduate of Wake Forest College, 
N. C, and later a graduate student of Cornell Uni- 
versity, New York, was elected Professor of Chem- 



144 HOWARD COLLEGE 

istry and Biology. In 1908 Assistant Professor Albert 
Lee Smith severed his connection with the College to 
enter into business with his father, Prof. A. D. Smith, 
and Mr. W. A. Berry, a recent graduate, was chosen 
to succeed him. 

In May, 1908, the College was fortunate in se- 
curing the services of Dr. George W. Macon as Dean 
and Professor of Biology. The condition of Pro- 
fessor Brand's health had made it necessary that he 
resign the deanship and seek leave of absence from 
the duties of the chair of Mathematics. 

Dr. Macon returns to his Alma Mater after dis- 
tinguishing service in Mercer University, Georgia, ex- 
tending through a period of thirteen years. 

At the same time Assistant Prof. Wm. A. Berry 
was confirmed in the position which he was filling 
temporarily; Earle Broadus Fowler, a graduate of 
Wake Forest College and a graduate student in the 
University of Chicago, and, at the time of his election, 
Professor of English in the Women's University at 
Raleigh, N. C, was elected Professor of English, 
Professor Cunningham having resigned to accept a 
position in Vermont; and J. W. Norman, a graduate 
of Mercer University and a graduate student in Har- 
vard University, was chosen to fill the chair of Mathe- 
matics. 



HOWARD COLLEGE 145 



PROPERTY OF HOWARD COLLEGE. 



The buildings and appointments of the College 
represent an expenditure of ^85,000. The friends of 
Christian education have donated over two hundred 
acres of land, described below. More than one-half 
of this land lies around Birmingham; some of it is 
to-day desirable building property, and most of it is 
rapidly enhancing in value with the development of 
Birmingham, Woodlawn, and East Lake. 

The Alabama Baptist State Convention, with a 
unanimous vote, offers the College yearly the interest 
on $100,000 at six per cent., or $6,000; this to continue 
until the permanent endowment of the institution has 
been increased by this amount.
